Anyone who has been involved in a car accident knows what a frightening experience it can be. Not only can accidents bring emotional trauma, but they can cause serious injuries as well. Usually these car accidents are due to speeding, aggressive driving, driver tiredness, cell phone use, or illegal maneuvers.
One of the most devastating causes of accidents, however, is drunk driving. Although you may be taking every precaution to be a safe driver, there is usually no way to prevent an accident with a drunk driver. Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) greatly impairs the driver's reaction time and decision making. Not only that, but it increases the drivers likelihood to fall asleep.
